  • had an outstanding time. saw some beautiful models they have in their exhibit. wanted to drive one right outta there so bad lol. one day :)
  • Outstanding display of automobiles from 1899 to 1935. Each car is a standout example of you to type and era. The museum building is spotless and beautiful. The staff are extremely warm, friendly, and inviting. As a result, I became a member even though I live an hour and a half drive away. Looking forward to the next display which should go up in early July.
